Re: Misunderstanding documentation protocols

Hi Jonathan:
This is useful.
So, you send W to a server and the server responds with ND(W).
The function W-> ND(W) is whatever the server implements.  You
could get different mappings from different servers
So, it has to be receiver/user beware.

The server MAY say something like "my NDs are authoritative based on
OED" and if they are not you have legal recourse but that is outside the protocol.

I don't know why you go down this alley.  I don't think it is relevant.

All the best, Ashok
